Theatrical Release DISCOUNT tickets

"There Once was an Island" is opening in New Zealand theatres Thursday this week! It's a film that we think is best served up on the big screen, so this is your chance to enjoy it at its most fetching.

DISCOUNTED TICKETS! Email takuufilm.
For those of you able to attend the Thursday 6pm screening at Rialto Newmarket, Lyn is doing a Q&A and we also have 20 discounted tickets available. Adults are $13.50 and kids/seniors $8.50. If you want to take advantage of this pricing please email takuufilm and we'll put you down. Tickets can be collected at the theatre on the night, and you will need to pay cash. This is a first come first served offer.

Thank you Cinemambiente

We're now at liberty to share the news that Cinemambiente has awarded "There Once was an Island" the jury prize for Best International Documentary. The Jury was headed by director Michael Cimino (The Deer Hunter). It's all getting a bit overwhelming. But is nevertheless very appreciated.
